Oatmeal Cinnamon Cookies Recipe

Oatmeal Cinnamon Cookies Recipe

My family loves these big old-fashioned cookies. They’re crisp, yet still chewy in the center, and the cinnamon makes them a little different from typical oatmeal cookies.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:24 servings


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in oats.
  • 2. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks. Yield: 4 dozen.

"The perfect cookie! It's crisp on the outside, and chewy on the inside and has a warm cinnamon flavor. I did not need to add extra flour, but I refrigerated the dough for 15 minutes before shaping."

"Love this cookie. I substitute 1/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce for 1/3 cup butter. Cuts the fat & makes a softer cookie."

"The taste itself was quite good, but they came out flat and just a little bit burnt. Reading from the other comments here, I think I should've added some extra flour."

"These were delish...but I will try with margarine or shortening next time. Mine were crisp, not at 2500 feet so maybe that was a factor..."

"This is similar to a recipe I used to have but lost but the flavor is amazing!

I added an extra quarter cup of flour. A tip from my lost recipe that I would likevto share is to add 2 Tablespoons of milk and then chill the finished dough for at least 1 hour."

"Excellent flavor and texture, this is one of my favorite cookies! However, as with some other cookie recipes from tasteofhome, I found I had to add up to 1/2 cup of flour so that they weren't spreading like crazy. Now whenever I make them I typically use 2 cups flour (often whole wheat pastry flour), and they turn out much more like the picture. All around a great basic to have one hand!"

"These are delicious.Thanks so much for sharing your recipe! I didn't add any cinnamon but decided to add about a cup of coconut and they came out so yummy. to all of you with problems with the cookie breaking, try letting them cool 1-3 minutes and you should have no problems.This would be a great recipe to add ingredients to such as nuts,crushed cereal, or dried fruit. Good luck!"

"I loved these cookies! They had an amazing flavor! Only thing is, for some reason they were flatter than I think they should have been.. Maybe I missed something.. or measured something wrong. Otherwise, AWESOME. Will definitely be making again soon!"
